Enter joelsprayberry's Dachshund wheelchair. It's an inexpensive way to support the dog's back legs until he can walk again. Reading through the comments is inspiring - so many people have found this Instructable, and built their dogs wheelchairs. Instead of having to put the dog down, it can recover and enjoy a full life. There's even a ferret version.
Any more heart-warming pet stories to share?
